Besides the Gutedel that is so characteristic of this region and has been cultivated in Markgräflerland for more than 200 years, the Chardonnay and the traditional varieties of Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder and Spätburgunder, Gerd Schindler has gradually extended the estate’s viticulture over the last 20 years. He included, for example, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, which originates from the Loire Valley and makes for a light and elegant white wine. The cultivation of Merlot especially proved very successful, as the vineyards of Lämmlin-Schindler offer perfect conditions for its vines that form the basis for outstanding, full-bodied, strong and fruity red wines.
If the vines have been pruned well, leaf and fruit ratio as well as soil management prove right, nature plays along and the time of harvest is correct, then in the cellar ‘all’ we need to do is steering it in the right direction.
Gerd Schindler is especially proud of his award-winning ruby red Spätburgunder that grows as Großes Gewächs on Mauchener Frauenberg.
All Lämmlin-Schindler’s wines have a highly individual touch. Their superb quality is no coincidence: In order to achieve rich and balanced results, especially the red vines are grown in small quantities only.
Traditionally produced varieties of sparkling wine, noble sweet aperitifs and fine varieties of brandy round of the estate’s extensive assortment.
White Wine Read more
Low in acidity: The Gutedel, that in Switzerland is also known as Chasselas or Fendant, originally came from the Jordan Valley and is over 5,000 years old. In Markgräflerland, Gutedel has been cultivated for over 200 years now and is regarded as a typical variety of this region. Due to its low but exhilarant acidity, the Gutedel is very easy on the stomach.
Stimulating: This region also offers excellent growing conditions for Riesling, that is popular for its sparkling freshness. Its grapes prefer a stony soil, as it can especially be found at Mauchener Frauenberg. Characterized by Jurassic limestone that is high in minerals, Lämmlin-Schindler’s Riesling is racy on the palate with a stimulating bouquet of grapefruit and peach.
Racy: The Scheurebe, created by and named after Georg Scheu in 1916, is a crossbred of Silvaner and Riesling. Its wine captivates us with a racy aroma of blackcurrant and grapefruit.
Refreshing: Approximately 100 years ago, Sauvignon Blanc was cultivated in Germany as Muskat-Silvaner. Today it is well-known all over the world. It’s aroma of citrus and gooseberries as well as its fine bouquet of elderflower give this wine its refreshing character. The spicy roasting aroma of Lämmlin-Schindler’s variety Fumé Blanc that ages in small oak barrels corresponds beautifully with the delicately fresh basic character of the grape itself.
Aromatic: The Gewürztraminer’s intensive rose aromas make it a delicious aperitif and popular companion to full-flavoured cheese. Its pleasant combination of fresh acidity and aroma is typical for this variety.
Tender and fruity: This rich and tender-fruity wine with its racy structure is a member of the Burgunder family and together with Grau- and Spätburgunder forms the pillars supporting the Lämmlin-Schindler estate.
Opulent: The popular and widely spread variety of Chardonnay is especially known for its ability to adapt to various conditions. Originally from France, it captivates us with its aroma of citrus and its opulent character.
Dry or with residual sweetness: By harvesting early, Lämmlin-Schindler turn the dry, refreshing Grauburgunder into a wonderfully tangy variety. Their rich Grauburgunder wines are full-flavoured with a delicate roasting aroma. Grauburgunder with a nice residual sweetness is offered under the pseudonym of Ruländer and presents itself rich in character and with an aroma of nuts and fruits.
Full-bodied: The white grape variety of Cabernet Blanc has been newly cultured in 1991 and belongs to the most fungus-resistant varieties. Its wine is full-bodied and dense and its fresh taste reminds of Sauvignon Blanc.

Spätburgunder and Merlot
Fruity and fresh: These rosé wines that are mainly pressed from Spätburgunder and Merlot offer a beautiful raspberry aroma and invigorating acidity. An early separation of grapes and mash makes for fruity and fresh rosé wines that are especially appreciated in summer.

For sophisticated demands: The “red one” of the Burgunder family is called Blauburgunder in Switzerland, Pinot Noir in France and Spätburgunder in Germany. At Lämmlin-Schindler, its cultivation is a century-old tradition. This well-structured red wine captivates with an extensive array of aromas that range from a light bouquet of raspberry or cherry to strong spicy aromas. In any case, the Spätburgunder is a top range wine for sophisticated demands.
Smooth and mellow: Originally from the area around Bordeaux in France, this grape variety has only been allowed to be cultivated in Germany since 1997. Its grapes develop into smooth, mellow and deeply red wines with a fruity, rich character. Merlot is a very sustainable wine well suited to be stored for long periods of time, but can just as well develop a pleasant maturity after only a few years.
Red Wine Cuvée
An elegant combination: The Lämmlin-Schindler Red Wine Cuvée is a combination of Cabernet and Pinot Noir. The rocky soil, on which these grapes grow, led to its name FRAUENFELS. This red wine offers a strong, spicy aroma of Paprika as well as a fruity bouquet reminding of blackberry and cassis – an elegant combination of the rich finesse and variety of aromas inherent in these grapes.
Versatile: Blaufränkisch, also known as Lemberger, prefers a mild climate and dainty sites. Stony loess-loam soil especially produces a superb quality. Depending on the time of harvest, these grapes can be developed into light and fruity wines or into deeply red wines that are high in tannin, full-flavoured, rich in character and offer aromas of cherry and berries. This wine can also be stored for a long time.
Sparkling Wines Read more
Traditional bottle fermentation: Lämmling-Schindler’s Winzersekt is produced according to the traditional Champagne-method and thus ferments in the bottle for 12 months. It is mainly pressed from grapes of Spätburgunder, Chardonnay and Weißburgunder, that give it a fruity touch, an intensive, long-lasting perlage and a delicate pink colouring.
Secco Read more
Sparklingly fresh: The Quippini (Latin for: “Why not?”) is a wonderfully refreshing Secco from ripe and fruity Müller-Thurgau grapes.

Mild and sweet wines
Handpicked elixirs: The assortment of Lämmling-Schindler offers specialties from mild wines up to the handpicked Trockenbeerenauslese at the top of the pyramid of German Prädikatsweine. The term “handpicked” is meant literally since in Germany these raisin-like shrivelled grapes with noble rot are really being handpicked and supply tiny amounts of this unique German elixir that is rather low in alcohol but has a very high residual sugar level and brilliant acidity. A good Trockenbeerenauslese is usually amber-coloured and can be stored for long periods of time.

High-proof: We distill all our brandies in our own distillery from our own, handpicked fruits and the marc from grapes and wine yeast.
